Beautiful area. The park has different sections and some are one way roads. It will help to get or print a map of the different areas. The park staff are wonderful and very helpful.

I stayed a night in one of their yurts and it was perfect. The microwave and small fridge were very helpful. The views were amazing, and the small deck in front was nice. Yurt and nearby bathrooms were very clean.

Easy to get reservations. Clean restrooms. Big spaces that give you some isolation from your neighbor. Good trails. Showers.

Over-the-Air TV was marginal, and would most likely be best in the upper part of the Elk Ridge camping area. We watched Redbox DVD movies instead.
